The Tiny Dorm Concerts IU student organization presents a series of performances by student singer/songwriters, including the finalists of the Indiana Remixed songwriting contest.
19-year-old singer-songwriter Sarah Cassidy idolizes guitar-wielding women and lyricism that is poetic, eccentric, and personal. Drawing inspiration from Joni Mitchell, Alanis Morissette, and Dodie Clark, Cassidy aims to create “a world of reverie and introspection” (WIUX). At Indiana University, she currently studies Voice at the Jacobs School of Music, with an outside field in Arts Management. You can follow Sarah and stay up to date with her latest releases at her website.
Kyle Fulford is a graduate student in the department of Folklore & Ethnomusicology. A native Bloomingtonian, Kyle also studied at the Jacobs School of music and plays several instruments. Written for Indiana Remixed: Sounds of the Hoosier State, the original song “Again,again” will feature at First Thursdays along with several covers.

Garrett Spoelhof is a third year jazz piano and audio engineering student at IU. He has been playing piano for 14 years, and producing music for 6 years.

We will custom print your phrase or word and then heat set this onto the shirt. You will be able to wear your shirt and share your ideas with others while also having the opportunity to see and learn more about your peers stance as well. Our goal is to support is to help you understand the resources, tools, and programs available to you on campus that can assist you in achieving your volunteer goals.
